The News Quiz MONTHLY October 2017 Form Tutor Time Topical Events Activity Settler Starter

The News Quiz MONTHLY October 2017 Form Tutor Time Topical Events Activity Settler Starter

15 topical questions of the month's news, across the UK and the world From the weekly News Quiz to be used as a monthly summary or because there's not time to do a quiz every week. Powerpoint so can be used on a standard whiteboard. Works well as a form group activity in form time. I give sweets/reward points to the winning group! (We're not supposed to give out sweets so it's a nice 'naughty' reward for knowing about the world this week!) Created 12 months of the year and uploaded to TES each month.

Summer Photos + Creative Writing Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different locations being shown in each of the photos. I have combined a summer photos presentation, with a set of creative writing prompts and 31 fun teaching activities linked to these photo flashcards to try in the classroom. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
